I can't imagine keeping a 4 year old occupied for that long. Esp because 7 pm Cali time is probably way past his bed time!
I have yet to try Jack in the Box! That will have to go on our next trip list! Yes, 7 PM in California is 10 PM here and WAY past his bed time. We were soooo loopy!

And Oh my gosh In-n-Out! I love that place! It's really the only fast food restaurant I will buy a hamburger from!

Your trip sounds pretty magical already and you haven't even arrived at DLR!
I can't wait to hear more!
I can understand why! It was delicious. All this talk about it has my stomach growling.

Kidding! I'm glad the flight was good. Our flights from Milwaukee to MCO only last 2 1/2 hours and it's long enough for me. I just hate sitting that long.

Love your Carzilla! They are fun to drive, plus they're so big I feel pretty safe!
Hmmmm! I took good food pictures there, didn't I?

I've had flights from NYC to MCO and MSP to MCO that have had my practically jumping off the plane. I think I just had a good mind-set for a looooooong haul and that helped!

I laughed at Carzilla too. Glad the ride was short. I was going to take the Disneyland Express but I am wondering if I should get a car for a day or 2.

How sweet that a boy got you seats at In N Out. Restores my faith a bit when I hear things like that.
The Disneyland Express can be a good option, but I do believe some of the other shuttles are cheaper, or even a car service. If you want to go offsite, I do recommend a car! It's a very easy drive. The parking fee for the Disneyland hotels are $15/night (but it is free if you are staying DVC!)

I know! I was in total awe of that young boy!

It really was a great day! It could have been one awful travel day, but it went as smoothly as it could have!

It's soooooooo very good. If you are ever on the West Coast, be sure to stop!

Everyone I've ever known that's been out west raves about In-N-Out, I'm dying to try it and yet trying not to get my hopes up just in case! I've always loathed fast food burgers.

Great spot for an unintended cliffhanger! Right when you get to Disney property...
Oh wow. Yikes! On one of our flights, I think it was on the way back, there was a Dad with two toddlers. The kids did pretty well, all things considered, but you could tell he was WIPED by the end of the trip!

The In N Out Burgers are better than your average fast food burger. I cannot stand McDonald's burgers (Burger King I can do), and these are MUCH better.

about the cliffhanger! Good point! And I took DAYS to return. I'm mean!

I'm finally back on here a bit more now that we have a trip in the works for next winter... it made my heart ache too much for WDW and knowing it wasn't in the cards for awhile. But we got some extra DVC points transferred into our account yesterday which means it's time to start planning... 10 months to go! Which means I need to get a ticker going... YAY!!

Anyhow, excited to read along and hopefully participate a bit more by making comments on a more regular basis instead of my tendency to lurk.

On that note... about your first couple of posts...

I'm so impressed about the happy plane ride... Way to go Henry! (And mad props for Mom and Dad for a well supplied bag o' fun and nice flight attendants with extra snacks)

So funny about baggage claim being outside! Nice and airy!

Oh, and In-N-Out Burgers... YUM!!!! And what a nice guy to save you a seat... very impressive!
I completely understand that ache! Did you guys buy more DVC points?! Congrats! We keep talking about it, but need to hold off for a while still. And congrats on the new trip!!!!!

It was kinda nice stepping off the plane into the warm California weather! We had a few beautiful days, and a few chilly ones!

Yeah I have never tried In and Out as we do not have them here but looks good!

UGH sorry you lost your post-I hate it when that happens!

Happy Friday!
I was so upset when I lost that post...I know I had a few other things I commented on as well than what I covered now, but all well. If I remember them, I'll post it.

AND I JUST REMEMBERED ONE!

It could have gone so, so, SO wrong. Thankfully Henry has a few flights under his belt and we came fully loaded.

You get the PP! You have boys! You SO get the PP!

I can NOT wait to see pics and reviews of your hotels. My DF and I are planning on staying onsite for the first time during our honeymoon, I am thinking of a split stay at PPH and GCH. Excited to hear the rest!
I know it! I was in total awe. What a good, good young man he was!

Both resorts are BEAUTIFUL. The location of the GCH is unreal...so cool to just be RIGHT there. I loved it! We have quite a few GCH pics too, the lobby is amazing.

I get nervous in any car nowadays!

You will have to try it if you ever make it out West. It's so good, better than your average fast food!

I just love that video of jumping on the bed. It is so cool to see other parents acting just as silly as I feel my DH and I act sometimes. And also cool to hear you with the camera and saying do it again or that one's good. I do the same thing, it had me laughing just watching it. The whole video is just so much fun to watch. Henry is just adorable.

On another note, at first I was like wow you get to keep the beach ball pillow and then I read more...$65. Sad thing is that I'm sure they have sold some to a parent who had a kid that kept bugging them and bugging them. They are cute, but not $65 cute.

Worse than NY airports? I am flying out of LAX when I go. I guess I will have to see. Add that to the research list.

We were obviously still on East Coast time!

Up next: Lucky Number 13.
That happened to me when I went to Vegas a few years ago. After 4 days Of sleeping 4 hours a night I crashed and slept 12. Then it was time to go home.

I'm so glad that your flight went well and seemed shorter than you expected.

I hate you lost your second post. So frustrating! That happened to me several times b/c the DIS apparently has a time limit when posting, so now I write all my posts in Word and then copy and paste them.
Oh yes, me and Chik-fil-a...BFF. Also very very good! We need these places in NYC! I've had Krispy Kreme, I'm not huge on it, but I'm not a big donut fan overall, so... We have Dunkin' Donuts here!

It was my own fault with losing my post. I was doing around 12 things at once and had the second half copied, so I could just paste it, but switched gears between postings and copied something else, so when I came back to post it was a bunch of numbers instead of a trip report. I have half of the TR written out, but not with pictures, and it's just kinda jotted down, so it still takes me a while to post an update.

How nice to have a table saved for you. Disney magic already?!
They are really nice! I really enjoyed having it, even though it was completely scary for the first 15 minutes!

And yes, the pixie dust apparently spread beyond Disneyland that day! There were quite a few people in there wearing Disney shirts and even a gal wearing mouse ears, so I think it's a fairly common stop after a day in the parks!

I had great dreams of getting a picture of us in front of the castle so I could frame it next to one of us in front of Cinderella's castle but I never even took a picture of the castle this trip! I'm so mad at myself!!

We ate at that same In and Out burger our first night too! Did y'all order anything off of the "secret menu"? We didn't because we didn't find out about it until the next day and never went back even though we wanted to!
Oh no! That stinks that it was raining and freezing during your trip! What a shame!!!

You know, any time I go to WDW I have a zillion pictures of the Castle...DL...two. I think it was just because I was so distracted and busy with other things that I kinda forgot!

Sounds like you need a REDO trip though!

I've never even heard of the secret menu!?!?!? What is it????? You have to tell me!

It's true, finding info for DLR was much harder, I agree! But don't worry, you have the basics with your WDW trips and DLR overall is MUCH easier, you will be okay! I hope to help provide some ideas, tips, etc. Ask any questions if you have 'em!

Wow, I had no idea those buildings at Long Beach were temporary! We flew Jet Blue ROC-JFK-Long Beach and it looked the same back in 2010! I thought it was hilarious that their baggage claim was essentially outdoors...something we could NEVER do in Rochester!

We used Super Shuttle out of Long Beach, so if anyone (your clients or other readers) is looking for a shuttle, that one was great. I would really recommend it!

Oh, and hurray for a good flight!

My DH and I have been to CA before but never ate at In and Out Burger, when we were last there in 1996, I didn't know about how good it was suppose to be. So now whenever we make it out there, we will have to try it. Plus the prices aren't bad at all. Even compared to here in TN, the prices aren't bad.

And as far as a DL trip for us, I'm hoping that I've convinced a friend of mine , who happens to have tons of Marriott points, to go with us next year and use the points for our room. That might make it affordable. I hope, because just from your FB updates, I so want to take Logan there. I've actually been to DL 3 times, I have an aunt and uncle who live out there, so my actual first Disney experience was DL at age 8. So hopefully I can get Logan there before he turns 8.

Can't wait for another update.
That is a GREAT idea about using Marriott points for a room! It's so nice that Disneyland has many wonderful off-site choices that are just as convenient. I hope it happens for you!

I hope my TR provides some tips and ideas for your future trip! We will definitely be going back at some point...I'd love to say next year!

That car was HUGE. We used to have a Honda Element which I thought was big.

I've enjoyed 8 awesome trips to WDW and cannot wait to experience DL. Getting to read about your trip highlights is just what I need to plan and get excited about our July visit. Thank YOU Brooke!
So glad to hear it!!! I hope my TR will help answer any questions and give you an idea of what to expect!! Let me know if you have any questions too.

Score on the Tahoe for $130!!! I drive a Tahoe and Melody hates driving my truck.

In N out Burger.... I need to eat there. and look at those prices. That's nice!
You are right! I didn't even realize the end/starts were so similar!

I was so nervous in that Tahoe for about 15 minutes, but got the hang of it. It's such a comfortable car, I can see why people like them!

You got an amazing deal on a rental!

Can't wait to read about the three resorts. We're planning a trip and can't decide.

Looking forward to reading more.
I have heard that about LAX, I kind of wanted that experience just for the experience (and it's the main airport, good as a TA to be familiar with it), but....we got an AMAZING deal to LGB, so I wasn't gonna complain.

Oh gosh, all three resorts are fantastic. I would have a HARD time picking between the Disneyland Hotel and the Grand Californian. They are both amazing for different reasons! PP is great, but it's definitely 3rd on the list (but the most budget friendly!)

I would love to see those mountains, too. I saw some of them, in the distance, when I went to New Mexico years ago and being in the west is certainly difference than the east coast.

Personally, I drive a Beetle, so yeah, a Tahoe in LA traffic would have thrown me a bit, too.

And I'd love to try In and Out! Yum.
We love JetBlue with those TVs, snacks and extra leg room! I prefer to fly them over any other airline. I just wish they went to Minnesota too!

The mountains were beautiful to see, even from way above. Someday I will see them from the ground!

We really liked the style of it too, it was comfortable, yet light and airy. Everything about the hotel was very nice! I'll have some pictures of the halls and such too later in the report.

I missed the vanity outside as well! It really is handy to have outside the bathroom.

Both Paradise Pier and the Disneyland Hotel rooms are BIG! The Grand Californian rooms are smaller because the hotel is newer....rooms have gotten smaller over the years!

Henry watched that with me as I uploaded it to YouTube and he was just giggling away when Joe would have the monkey (Bill) speak to the camera. We are nuts! But, it was so fun. And yes, that is definitely a peek int our normal world with Henry!

They originally didn't have signs on the beds with the beach balls and they disappeared QUICKLY, so they put that price tag on them! I bet you are right in them selling some due to a child who is begging and begging!

We never got onto West Coast! It worked wonderfully to our advantage during the entire trip. This non-Rope Droppin' family was up bright and early!

Yep! I had to ask because it was just so strange! It was kinda nice having things outside though, got to enjoy the California sun a bit more.

Ahhh, that's it!!! PAT, check into the Super Shuttle! I am 99% sure it's cheaper than the Disneyland Shuttle.

Glad the flight went well - thats a long flight for a little kid!! Sounds like Henry was a trouper. I love In and Out Burger, have been to LA several times as my Uncle lives North of LA so fly in there when we visit him and have hit an In and Out on every visit - yumminess!

The area wasn't very clean and honestly, I felt like we had to wash our hands just standing in the restaurant. I won't be going back. I hope that doesn't sound judgy or mean... but it was kinda alarming and we had our dd who was maybe 4 or 5 at the time with us. I think we were asked for money from no less than 5 people, but as many as 10. (it was a few years ago that we were there so I don't remember exactly)

I love the update, btw! I have never seen pics of inside the DL resort rooms. Funny though...all those outdated paradise pier images... that is how I remember DCA. I have not been since they did the refurb.

I just love when Henry jumps on the bed at the start of each resort stay!

The Paradise Pier rooms look very nice, but I am looking forward to seeing the Disneyland Hotel ones -- that's where I want to stay. You did have a couple of nights, there, didn't you?
